Doncaster has seen tough times over the last two or three decades. The decline of the coal mining industry led to a similar decline in employment across all job sectors. But it's able to count Labour leader Ed Miliband among its MPs and that should be one political heavyweight able to encourage big business into South Yorkshire. Mining and quarrying still remain significant employers but it's the public sector which accounts for most jobs. Local government, education, social work and the like provide rewarding careers in Doncaster or other parts of South Yorkshire.

Manufacturing remains a significant player in the jobs sector. The steel industry has left a legacy of good knowledge and skills in steel and other metals. This has made the manufacturing companies world leaders in an industry we'll never be able to live without completely. But it's the distribution sector which dominates both as an employer and in a physical sense. Huge warehouses near to the A1M and M18 road links, or to the railport and airport signal jobs in transport, logistics and management.
Health care and Digital Media are two of the sectors experiencing rapid growth in the Doncaster area. These are generally employers of small numbers of people but this could be a sector to enter now and ride the wave of expected growth.
